My mini-review of Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

Short version: you know who won’t like this film? That’s right: Communists.

Slightly longer version: do you want to see kaiju fighting other kaiju, kaiju fighting the US military, and the US military and kaiju teaming up to fight other kaiju? You do? Go see Godzilla: King of the Monsters. You don’t? …Well, the above provocative statement aside, you’re probably not a Communist. I will be honest: this movie is not exactly Arrival*.

But it is so totally not trying to be, either. It knows what you want: CGI monsters, rubber physics, and famous locations being fought over. And it gives it to you. It’s gonna give you more of it next year when Godzilla ‘fights’ Kong, too**. Until then: movies like this are why weekend matinees exist, folks. Perfect early afternoon fare.

*Wonderful movie. Perfect science fiction. Even made money. So why those f*ckers in Hollywood keep refusing to make more just like it is beyond me completely.

**Come on. We all know that they’re going to team up. It is… inevitable.

    Does Godzilla have a Ronald Reagan shirt or something? Maybe an ‘I like Ike! button?

    Looking forward to seeing this. May even go watch it in the theater.

    Just as a random note- Humble has a bunch of Godzilla comics as a bundle right now.
